gEUS (1320) - Linden, BELGIUM - NOV 29, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours hazy golden with a steady white fine mousse head. Peach yoghurt aroma, citrus peel, lime juice. Interesting body that holds the middle between sourness and bitterness, making it all very easy to drink. Dry, tart finish. Citrus taste, a bit of solvent alike flavours (poster paint and bee wax) as well. Nice & fresh, quite drinkeable.
